MUSIC IS MY KIND OF SOUND
Music is a language. That isn’t new- many have already said that and many more have felt it. It is not a language made of words but of pure sounds - even if words are in themselves made of sounds.
Not every kind of sound is Music, at least not what I call Music.
Words are sounds arranged in a consistent, logical sequence which enables them - when we know the key, the language - to transfer ideas and concepts. Those sounds have an impact on our intellect. Some ideas are good, some may not be good.
Some types of sounds - which are, sadly, too often confused with Music - awake some basic, vital and emotional instincts. Those sounds are more mechanical than melodic. The instincts are awaken by a constant repetition of the same simple sequence. Some instincts are good, and some aren’t.
Music awakes a higher state of consciousness, that allows us to communicate with what I would name Sentiments i.e. elevated Emotions. Music speaks to the soul, not to the instincts. Music is melodic, never mechanical. Music allows us - even for a moment - to be the drop which reunites with the Ocean and it makes this moment last, as if it was Eternity.
Can only a particular type of Music be considered as good? I wouldn’t say that. I'd better say that all kinds of music, music from any epoch and culture is good - but it should be Music, Not just mere sounds.
